Gary Shore is a narrative and visual storyteller with a love for Sergio Leone, antiheroes, and turning complex sentences into pleasing pictures. He hails from Artane, on Dublin’s northside. After watching films in GMIT and IADT in Ireland, and painting at Central Saint Martins in London, Gary carved out a career as a commercials director for some big brands, picking up a couple of YDA nominations and industry awards along the way.
Gary transitioned to film with his first feature, Dracula Untold, for Universal Pictures, which grossed $240 million at the worldwide box office, sat at number one in 32 countries, and won the Saturn Award for Best Horror in 2014 —which is bizarre given the film is a fantasy/action adventure. Gary is currently turning lots of words into scary pictures for his next feature project, a horror set on the Queen Mary ship in Long Beach, California — apparently one of the most haunted locations in the world.
